    Default Starbucks gift card from Discover

    Did anyone else get a Starbucks gift card from Discover? Got my mail today and received a pleasant surprise from Discover in a very discrete brown envelope, there was no indication that it was from Discover. When you open it the envelope is inside looks like the Discover IT card and when you open it there is a Starbucks card inside.

    Several folks at myfico reported the same thing. Some got Starbucks cards, while some got iTunes or Red Lobster giftcards. I wonder what the criteria is for receiving a gift from them. I've only been with Discover since October so I don't know if I'll get one

    I am wondering if that is what I got recently. I am currently in college 300 miles away from home and my mom said I got an envelope with some sort of card in it. I was thinking it might be my Discover IT, but I have heard that comes in a box. She is forwarding it to me.
